You might be surprised to hear this, but if you’re a dad, you’re almost certainly
going to give a speech when one of your children ties the knot. You might expect
it with your daughters, but it is now becoming common to deliver a „father of the
groom„ speech, too.
Rather than being bothered by this, you should take it as a compliment that your
services are in such high demand. At the same time, you should proceed with
caution, knowing that the audience at the reception hall will expect a lot from you.
This is especially true if you are delivering a father of the bride speech.
Indeed, the two most anticipated speeches are the father of the bride’s and the
best man’s. That means that a lot of people are expecting to be entertained and
to learn something about your daughter through this speech. This is your
opportunity to tell them how you feel and to give her a lasting, positive message
about her marriage.
Now, what goes into a father of the bride or father of the groom’s speech isn’t
exactly a science. However, there are a number of components that all speeches
of these type should contain; and there is a general format they should follow.
In the remainder of the book, I will provide you with a number of templates that
you can use to construct your own speech. I personally suggest that you pick
one, fill in your details, and then spend some time altering it significantly, so that
it makes your tone and style.
